Our Neighborhoods


At Dunkin’ Brands, community is the heart of our business. That’s why we established The Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation. Working in partnership with Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins franchisees across the country, the Foundation serves the basic needs of our communities through food for the hungry, safety and children’s health. It’s what we do every day.

We accomplish this by partnering with national nonprofit organizations whose missions are aligned with our priorities, and who make a significant impact in our communities. Since the Foundation’s start, more than $2 million has been awarded to organizations including:


By supporting these organizations and the extraordinary people that work for them, the Foundation serves our neighborhoods and makes a difference in our local communities.


For Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins franchisees, charitable giving begins at their own front doors. Our franchisees generously support many local organizations such as the Jimmy Fund, American Red Cross, Autism Speaks, Special Olympics, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Easter Seals, and local children’s hospitals.


Volunteerism is a company-wide commitment at Dunkin’ Brands. All full-time employees receive one day of paid time each quarter to perform community service. Our employees give 3,000 hours annually of volunteer time to support efforts such as:

  • Sorting food and serving meals at local food banks and pantries
  • Collecting gently used items and sorting them for families in need
  • Hosting blood drives and donating platelets
  • Sponsoring families during the holidays, providing gifts and basic necessities
  • Working with hearing and vision impaired students
  • Park and river clean-ups
